Change A Habit In Three Steps With This Flowchart
I'm going to promote your comment by way of calling you out for being a bullshitter extraordinaire. Nicotine is one of the most famously addictive substances known. There are many cases reported of people who were told they had cancer, were on drugs and treatment to help them fight cancer, and yet could not stop smoking tobacco. The BBC had a documentary about this phenomenon at least 15 years ago. If you claim that you simply stopped your addiction to tobacco and 'it was easy', I can only suspect you to be either a liar or someone with above-human psychological abilities. Next, you denounce anyone who can't lose weight as being 'weak, lazy' and lacking motivation. You're a troll, right? Fuck you. I do know many people who have just quit tobacco, even after many many years. The simple fact is some people can do it, others cannot. Plenty of people quit that way.
